The joint event of 19th International Symposium on Geo-disaster Reduction (19ISGdR) and High-Level Academic Forum on Disaster Mitigation and Integrated Risk Defense on the Plateau was held on 11–15 July in Xining, Qinghai Province, China, focusing on the theme of “Geological disaster and integrated risk defense”. This event consisted of keynote lectures, invited lectures, and Youth forum, which provided a platform for scientists, industrial professionals and young scholars to share their research progress and exchange novel ideas on geo-disaster reduction in a hybrid way of offline and online. A post-symposium field trip for three days was also conducted in the joint area between Qinghai-Tibet plateau and Loess plateau.

Finally, the opening ceremony was ended up with a group photo as shown in Fig. 4. Keynote lectures The ISGdR 2021 arranged 6 Keynote Lectures. The key - note lectures covered various topics related to the theme of this symposium, including geology and hydrogeology background of geo-disasters, mechanism analysis of geo- disasters, investigation methods, prevention and control measures, and so on (Fig. 5). The details of the keynote lectures, including topic titles, presenters and their affili - ations, were summarized in Table 1. Parallel sessions For a further discussion on the issues of geological disaster cases, regional feathers, investigation, mechanism, preven- tion and etc., the symposium set three parallel sessions. There were 10 invited lectures and more than 20 presenta - tions in the Youth Forum on the afternoon of 12 July. The information of the invited lectures was listed in Table 2.

Post‑Symposium Field trip Followed the onsite symposium, a field trip to the north part of Qinghai Province was conducted on 13–15 July. 42 participants attended the field trip. This trip focused on the geological and topographical feathers at the bound- ary between Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Loess Plateau.

As shown in the photos dur- ing the trip, one of the landslides from the source area divided into two branches in the accumulation area (Fig. 11a). Figure 11b showed a typical circular landslide with a relatively intact landslide bench, while, Fig. 11c showed debris slides with a short sliding distance com- paring to a typical debris flow. Besides, a probable debris flow site was observed on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau landform. Since there were large rocks with random dis- tribution and poor roundness on both sidewalls of the gully (see Fig. 12), it could be judged that this area was the accumulation fan of an old debris flow, and it might be impacted by another debris flow formed in the cur - rent gully. At the end of the field trip, the group passed through 9 On-site explanation and discussion during the field trip the Riyue Mountain, which is almost the joint between the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the Loess Plateau.
